Thiago Silva wants Chelsea to make a move for PSG star Neymar.
The Brazilian has been linked with a move away from the French club this summer and PSG reportedly are open to an exit.
Ex-PSG defender Thiago Silva has urged Chelsea to sign Neymar at Stamford Bridge earlier this week.
“He has to go to Chelsea. If it happens, it will be for the best. He needs no comments,” Silva said.
“So far, I don’t know anything, but I hope it comes to fruition.”
But the Blues has been warned by Gustavo Poyet about signing Neymar and instead told to prioritise a move for Ousmane Dembele.
“Chelsea shouldn’t try to sign Neymar,” Poyet told Lord Ping. “I think he will stay at PSG. I think after [Kylian] Mbappe announced he was staying and with their ambition to try and win the Champions League, I can’t see him leaving.
“I don’t think he would adapt quickly to English football with how physical it is. I can’t see him joining Chelsea.”
